Independent Mortgage Advice
What is independent mortgage advice, and what are the benefits?
In short independent mortgage advice is provided by mortgage brokers, who have extensive knowledge of mortgage deals available from a range of different lenders. This will also give you access to various products and mortgage schemes.
An independent mortgage broker will search the market for you to ensure that they recommend the best deal to suit your circumstances.
The benefits are access to a much more comprehensive range of additional lending criteria and an uplift in the maximum loan that may be achieved by approaching a lender directly.Enquire Here Compare Us
Professional Independent Mortgage Advice
How can you measure the value of independent mortgage advice?
The mortgage market is complex, with each lender having different market specialisations, product offerings, rates, and types of property they will lend on.
Lenders often use complex calculations to establish what they consider affordable; therefore, loan amounts can differ greatly between lenders.
Reviewing the best rates on a comparison site will provide information on the best-priced deals. However, what happens if you only partially match all the lender’s criteria and affordability calculations?
Searching for the ideal product, it is only sometimes about the rate. Finding the right mortgage for your situation is about considering your personal objectives and situation, then factoring in the differing lender criteria and establishing which lender and scheme will fit and be most suitable.
Consider the longer term, i.e.; your mortgage is likely to be taken out for a period of 10-40 years. Is it possible that the market leader will always offer market-leading rates at the end of your product (i.e. 2 to 5 years).
If you review your open market options at the end of each product period, it is likely that you will save £1000’s in interest or could use any savings to shorten your mortgage term. An independent mortgage broker firm will assist you in reviewing these options. It is almost guaranteed that the initial lender will not be the market leader for your full mortgage term.Enquire Here Compare Us

Direct Lender vs Independent Advice.
MMPE’s ethos is to ensure that clients benefit from quality, professional mortgage & protection advice. Working closely with our clients to advise on suitable mortgage products to meet needs and requirements.
Protection of our clients is also a fundamental aspect of our advice process. Advising clients on how best to protect their home, their family, and their income. Protection planning is often overlooked, possibly due to the additional cost. At MMPE we provide our clients with a full mortgage protection report to demonstrate needs and costs. Clients can then make an informed decision of what cover is priority to them and ensure that cover is affordable.
